La Jolla Symphony & Chorus Presents its Final Program of Season
The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C) presents its final program of a season celebrating David Chase’s 40th anniversary year as choral director. Music Director Steven Schick opens the concert conducting the orchestra in Leos Janaceck’s Zárlivost (“Jealousy”) and the classical proportions and high spirits of Haydn’s final symphony, his “London Symphony.” David Chase concludes his anniversary season leading orchestra, chorus, three vocal soloists, and virtuoso guitarist in a chorus favorite, Cary Ratcliff’s Ode to Common Things.
The performances take place June 7-8, 2014 in Mandeville Auditorium at UCSD. Concert times are 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. Individual tickets are $29 general, $27 senior, and $15 student. Parking is free. A pre-concert lecture is offered one hour prior to concert times. To purchase tickets or for more information, call the LJS&C office at (858) 534-4637.
The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus is San Diego’s oldest and largest community orchestra and chorus. In six concert pairs each season performed on the UC San Diego campus, the ensemble combines classics from the traditional repertoire with a unique blend of premieres, commissions and performances of rarely-heard, often monumental works. Under the leadership of Music Director Steven Schick, LJS&C has been critically acclaimed as offering the most daring orchestral programs in the country. He was joined during the concert season by colleague David Chase who celebrated his 40th year as LJS&C Choral Director.
